The subtropical garden is a garden of luxuriant foliage, dramatic form, and vibrant color. Lush in undergrowth, it is spiked above with palm or tree fern fronds, punctuated by suspended epiphytes, with a backdrop of climbing vines and a foreground of blazing bromeliads. In its drier areas it flaunts sword-like plants in bold clumps, thick-fleshed aloes and swollen succulents. It is a dynamic, year-round garden, where warmth makes for rapid growth.

Illustrated with numerous superb color photographs, this beautiful book will be welcomed by innovative gardeners who delight in exotic plants. The Subtropical Garden offers essential information on a tempting selection of palms, bamboos, flowering trees, climbers, shrubs, foliage plants, perennials, orchids, bromeliads, ferns and water plants.

Although intended specifically for the fortunate gardeners of zones 8 and above, the information provided can allow adventurous gardeners in colder climates to incorporate subtropical elements by careful site selection, or by planting in containers so that plants of moderate size can be brought indoors during northern winters.
